Congratulations to the inaugural America250 Award recipients! Learn more about them.

Engage

On July 4, 2026, communities nationwide will join America250 and our partners to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and the founding of a new nation.

America250’s five-year journey will culminate in partnership events, concerts, parades, and ceremonies in the official gathering places of America’s semiquincentennial. From online to in-person, we will create national signature events and partner with international, state, tribal, local, and grassroots efforts to provide multiple access points for all 330 million Americans to participate in this historic commemoration.

Events

At the heart of America250 are programs and events in communities across the nation and around the world. Through 2026, tens of thousands of programs, big and small, will bring neighbors and communities together. United by a common vision, these will inspire us to explore the meaning and promise of the United States.
